In a statement Apple shares some stories that took place in Africa, a continent very affected by AIDS. In particular, we learn that the Global Fund has donated money to thousands of facilities in Kenya and seven other countries in sub-Saharan Africa to reduce the spread of AIDS. In Kenya alone, there were 53,000 HIV cases in 2017. This is down significantly from previous years. In 2000, for example, 9.3% of the adult population was HIV-positive. The rate was 4.8% last year.
Apple will continue to help (RED). From December 1 to December 7, for any purchase made with Apple Pay on the Apple Online Store, the Apple Store App or the Apple Retail Store, Apple will donate $ 1 to the Global Fund.
